I tried converting my lv to a mirrored one with --corelog, which worked
perfectly. However, after a reboot, the mirror is being recreated, which
takes quite some time and leaves me with a largely unresponsive system.

Is there some way around this? Would having the log on the master disk
fix this? If so, does it need it's own PV or LV or neither?
